We noticed leather harnesses pop up on a couple of New York Fashion Week runways, a trend that continued onto London's catwalks.
Reed Krakoff's version came with fur on the bottom, while Sass & Bide simply belted their intricate white harness over an evening gown. Topshop Unique offered chocolate brown straps over pea coats and jackets (on boots, too) and back in New York Phillip Lim went half way there with thick leather suspenders on skirts and wide-leg pants.
The idea recalls Bliss Lau's body jewlery, which comes in similar shapes, but is hard to wear outside of tank top weather. Reproducing the look in leather and layering over sweaters and coats may be the most useless accessory ever, but it sure looks cool.
